Old Trim Hang Ups

I found these two similarly sized trim pieces at a recycled building supply center.  The paint colors were really awful and didn't coordinate with each other at all.  I stripped them, and found they both had traces of white underneath.  I decided to leave some of it in the nooks and cranies.  I added the hooks, which were a garage sale find.  The two pieces make a functional pair on my kitchen wall.

Nice job!
